After back-to-back bronze medals in this event in 2013 and 2015, the Polish quartet of Piotr Zyla, Dawid Kubacki, Maciej Kot and Kamil Stoch had their sights on a bigger prize.

And they ensured they got their hands on it as they finished with a total of 1104.2, with defending champions Norway second with a score of 1078.5.

Completing the podium in third were Austria who had Stefan Kraft to thank after he recorded the best score of the fourth and final jump.

Slovenia and double Olympic medallist Peter Prevc were disappointing and finished fifth, but they was no doubting who the stars of the show were.

Poland are the current World Cup leaders and they finally got their hands on that long-awaited world title. Sportsbeat 2017
